Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Statistical Highlights 2018
The tragic earthquake and tsunami on the Indonesian island of Sulawesi are stark reminders for us all that Southeast Asia is one of the world’s most disaster-prone regions. This is why the European Union has today signed a EUR 10 million financing agreement in Brussels to support ASEAN, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, and its Coordinating Centre for Humanitarian Assistance on Disaster Management (AHA Centre).
The relationship between the European Union and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations is built on strong foundations. Relations have grown over time and encompass today a broad spectrum of social, political, economic, trade, developmental, and security dimensions. Dialogue and cooperation are the basis of the EU-ASEAN partnership. The EU is one of ASEAN’s longstanding dialogue partners and one of ASEAN’s main development partners, both at regional and bilateral levels.
The year 2017 is a milestone in many ways. It marks 60 years of European integration, 50 years since the establishment of ASEAN, and 40 years of the ASEAN-EU partnership. Today, ASEAN and the EU represent the two most advanced examples of regional integration in the world, bringing together more than 1 billionpeople.
The global objective of this programme is to strengthen regional cooperation, enhance the quality, regional competitiveness and internationalisation of ASEAN higher education institutions and students, contributing to an ASEAN Community in 2015 and beyond.
The overall aim is to increase and diversify exports and investments of the EU, in particular by SMEs, to Indonesia as a gateway to ASEAN. The project will promote Indonesia as a high potential trade and investment market to assure that EU companies, in particular SMEs, are able to better exploit the growing opportunities in Indonesia as a gateway to ASEAN market in accordance with their corporate core values on sustainable development and corporate social responsibility.
This service contract supports the EU Delegation in Indonesia and the EU Mission to ASEAN to ensure a strengthened approach to public diplomacy and outreach within a number of selected key areas of cooperation between the EU and Indonesia, as well as the EU and ASEAN.
